A Rational Leader Remains So, Even After Leaving Office

It is refreshing to continue to listen to a Leader such as Papua New Guinea’s former Prime Minister Sir Julius Chan. Sir Julius, has been looking for methodologies that will improve his country’s present financial condition; this, which was brought on by the infamous Corona Virus [CV-19].

The former Prime Minister continues, we think, to properly assess a marketable commodity produced in his country: Gold [Au]. As other mineralizations plunge in value in the world market, we, as International Businessmen, are of the opinion Au will rise; this, in continual opposition to many other commodities mined.

As the adage goes: “There is no replacement for Experience.” Sir Julius exhibits continued profound Wisdom, in a world of which we continually see, of inept, ill-reasoned ‘business’ decisions by various countries’ ‘leaders’; they are not “Leaders”, as was (and is) Sir Julius.

CV-19 Decisions: Many of these “marginal-merit ‘miasms'” of ‘leaders’, are ruining their countries’ economies; these, worse than most natural disasters or probable warfare would. We see recoveries, for many countries, not in a time-frame of months, but years.

Reality: As fine wine improves its quality with age, so does consistently: a few remarkable men and women, who we deem as “Leaders”.

World Shipping Industry: For Captains And Crews There Are No “Safe Harbors” For Free And Ready Transits Home

The current Covid 19 [CV19] pandemic has spawned a ‘Social Pandemic’, we, who, for many decades, closely follow ‘Merchant Shipping’, have never seen before. It is a situation of government leaders deciding not to allow crew transits from ships to shore for egress to other nations; for CV 19 contamination reasons. Evidencing much ineptness of logical thought, these government leaders disregard the facts of crews being isolated during their voyages and are NOT carrying CV 19 with them. These ‘situations’ offer: “The crews are not contaminated; people on shore may well be. Ergo, the crews face the risk of contracting CV 19 [not the other way around].”

Furthering the ‘Contamination Concept’ we wonder how many “Ship Chandlers” outfits have been closely tested and or quarantined; this, for their interfaces with both ships’ crew-members and supplies coming in-bound off the ships, goods for later re-sale to other ships, to their organizations? We have heard of none. Perhaps because they are ‘Locals’, governments’ Ports Authorities have deemed them “In-contaminable’?

Going ‘up the ladder towards the bridge’ there are many “middle-men” who are responsible for ships’ crew’s employment. It appears to us they have done next to nothing, on a macro-level, to put pressure to bear on their governments to de-escalate the ‘Slave-Labor (Voluntary, turned to Involuntary Servitude) being ‘stuck aboard ship’ for months.

Upon the bridge, ship-owners, bankers, investors, et al have acted with ‘Effete Dynamism‘ in solving this crisis to crews. As the adage states: “What goes around, will come around.” A dearth of enthusiastic crew members makes for a greater potential of: Cargo mis-handlings; Crew Injuries; Fires; and Sailing Mishaps.

It is our opinion that it is well likely that Maritime Insurance costs will rise, as maladies start occurring at a greater rate in the industry. As many crew members decide to change careers or retire earlier, “newbies” who enter the business will make a greater incidence of errors; leading to many of the aforementioned problems. There is no substitute for experience. As International Businessmen, we would think that at the present moment, many Insurers in Hamilton, London, New York City and others, would be taking a serious look at potential risk exposures brought about mainly through ineptness of decisions and dearth of training.

The other adjoining group that should be closely reviewed are the ‘Ship Registrations’. We have not seen a great deal of progress by any of them to conjoin with each other and quickly solve this ‘Humanitarian Issue’ for ship crews. “Why Not”, we ask. Is it that managements of such registries ‘do not have a clue’ to solving problems? They do have a responsibility to regulate those vessels under their purview.

Due to “Supply Chain” conundrums, we find it amazing that the world Main Stream Media, has largely ignored this vital industry’s current dilemma. If goods cannot be transferred from the manufacturer to the wholesaler; then, goods from the wholesale to the retailer to the customers, are a mere hologram. Who outside of “Bloomberg” clearly presents this dilemma to the public? We, as analysts of all types of shipping everywhere, are familiar; the “Men and Women of the world” are not. They will be irate when they cannot locate that which has NOT been shipped to their favorite stores. Is not this subject newsworthy?

Reality: The severity of a Pandemic is exacerbated by multiple very poor decisions, by many, in various ‘arenas’, that have portrayed themselves as omniscient; their decisions are substantively ‘Chalcopyrite’ [Fool’s Gold].

Countries Getting Through The Covid Crisis Are Quantified

An excellent report, thorough in its scope, has been created by ‘Horizon Insight and Strategy’; it is called “Recover, (Re)build: Exploring Country Capacity Post-COVID”. This work analyzes 122 countries throughout the world and looks at ‘Resiliency Elements’ for economic success, after this Influenza gets defeated.

Beyond the economic capitalizations of countries being vastly different, other elements come into play after Covid 19. Using technology by a country’s population, such as the Internet can help; having a workforce ‘mind-think’ of adaptation to the new ‘world’ can be of use; upgrading financial systems will be of assistance; having countries’ Leaders that can ACTUALLY lead would be of great benefit; thinking on a ‘macro’ level is beneficial.

We, as International Businessmen, can also add: ‘Intellect’ is fine but it also needs to be reinforced with ‘Intrepidness’. As we have seen in others, over the many decades, when confronted with a ‘Unknown’, many people just ‘cry into their beers’: “Alas, woe are we.” Weakness is a luxury no one can afford. The World belongs to the Aggressive.

Reality: Although it might at times not appear so, there is reasonableness in being resolute: “It is better to wear out, than to rust out.”

Forgetful Memories Do Not Serve Nations’ Administrations Well

The 45th Anniversary of the Assassination of Bangladesh’s Leader brings to mind a couple events in the Middle East, rather ‘recently’. In one, a foreign intelligence agency of renown, allegedly alerted the president of Turkey of such a plot against him. This cabal, apparently approved by the leader of a noted large hegemonic country, and controlled by a senior military officer of that country, fortunately failed. The president of Turkey, being a very strong and intelligent leader, thereafter pursued the many plotters of the insidious scheme, to their chagrin.

Earlier, to the southwest of Turkey, in Libya, Muammar Ghaddafi was eliminated. The Secretary of State of the aggressor Nation stated after his demise: “We came, We saw, He died.” [and then laughed]. Psychosis is where one finds it.

As International Businessmen, we see NO value in physically attacking Nations’ leaders; especially those who are “Leaders”. We think smart and WISE Leaders can negotiate with each other as to their national interests; why not? We also think loathsome ‘Black Mambas’ in governments and their intelligence services, should be reviewed as to possible ‘Hidden Agendas’ they may be personally pursuing.

We will, for our subscribers, be discussing, in depth, a global-level plot hatched by some presidents. This multi-nation scheme: “The Governatorship“, has already displayed some of its insidious workings through nations’ “Strong-Men”, removals, which have occurred. This multi-decade strategy left no nations’ “Strong Leader” safe. Its short-coming fortunately, is the fact: “There are no long-term secrets.”

As to the counter to hegemonic nations, with their non-elected Intelligence Agencies‘ Directors [NEIADs], and their schemes, we say to other Nations’ leaders: “Always sleep with one eye open”. As we have stated before: ‘Be most leery of the Wolves who bleat like Sheep.’ For the NEIADs we think: “What goes around, comes around.” The knowledged understand: “It is a small world. Everyone can be found.”

Reality: The Pawns, Bishops, Knights, Rooks, and even Queen may think they can displace the King; sometimes, however, God does not agree.

Scientific Historian Thucydides, Without Mentioning The Deities, Might Have To Mention Hospitals’ Reverance Of ‘Saint Benjamin’ [As In $100.00 U.S. Currency]

In U.S. Congressional testimony, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Director admitted to some American hospitals’ corruption about CV-19 claims. Acknowledging the fact that hospital administrators could certify patient deaths as being caused by CV-19, when another cause produced the fatalities. This tactic is to gain more funding from the U.S. Government or insurance carriers.

Since fraudulent claims are relatively easy to manufacture, especially by “Medical Professionals” is should not surprise anyone about cheating. Medical Doctors [MDs] took the “Hippocratic Oath’ in their days of education in medical schools. As we have written before, a few also took a “Hypocritic Oath” [in ‘Frauding the Medical System’]. They seek to gain as many ‘Benjamin Franklins’ ($100.00 U.S. Currency Bills) as quickly as they can.

The very unfortunate pandemic of CV-19, is currently providing a tsunami of cash flow into both hospitals, who are treating patients, as well as the MDs therein. The incentive may be two fold: for MDs who have gargantuan amounts of student loans to repay, ‘gaming the system’ provide quick cash flow to repay debts. For others, using the adage: “Risk has its own rewards”, CV-19 epitomizes the possibility of contracting the virus. Some hospitals and MDs may think they are justified in stating CV-19 causality, where it is not the case; this for more monies to them since some are treating virulent patients.

As the malady of CV-19 continues to progress around the world, one can assume that other hospitals and MDs in other countries will, if not having done so already, ‘play the money game’; by incorrectly stating CV-19 causality for deaths. Some people say: “America, with its great wealth, has some of the most corrupt people in the world of commerce”. Expect to see ‘corruption devotees’ in hospitals and medical communities, in other countries. After all, these Medical Professionals elsewhere, will want to emulate the ‘Medical Fraudsters’ in America. “Nothing succeeds like excess” some MDs will think. Hence, the monetary apotheosis for them is America’s “Saint Benjamin”.

Reality: Technical Education, of any discipline, does not instill Moral Intrepidness; that asset comes with strenuous soul-searching.

CV-19 Frauds: What Is Happening In Dhaka, Is Also Happening In Orlando

“Medical Professionals” [MP’s], on different continents, appear to be attempting to ‘Scam their Systems’ so they can collect ‘CV-19’ monies; this, through ‘Fraudulent Means’. Falsified test ‘positives’, non-existent therapies practiced on patients, and the like, are a couple of the ‘scams perpetrated; there will be many others discovered. We think CV-19 Fraud will eventually be found here, there, and everywhere.

As we have stated many times: “In International Business, the morality of the marketplace is not very high”. Before this world-wide pandemic occurred, MP’s took the ‘Hippocratic Oath’ of allegiance to ‘Curing their fellow-man’; Some also, took another pledge of allegiance, to the “‘Hypocritic’ Oath”, it seems.

As the world succumbs to the ‘Sizzle’ of the CV-19 Pandemic’s reported’ ‘Casualties and Deaths’, we advise caution; a great deal of caution. Where monies are to be made, it often brings out the worst of behaviors by many; those highly educated or not. “Anything For A Buck” is the modus operandi, of some. As ‘Organized Crime’ will assuredly make illegal gains off of this health malady, so will some “Organized Medical Professionals”, as is being evidenced now.

Fraud may be found through the judicious analyses by ‘wise’ assessors of probabilities, of reliability of reports; this along with a healthy scepticism of motives of reporters. If honest “Health Care Professionals’ join in and call out fraud, the medical miscreants can be pursued. The Dhaka “Rapid Action Battalion”, we think, as International Businessmen, should be both commended and be a ‘platform’ adopted by other Nations. The Bangladesh Government is showing resolve in attacking medical licensed ‘Fraudsters’; this evidences: Leaders who are leading.

We can understand Organized Criminals’ motivations in seeking out ‘fast bucks’; after all, they are ‘Criminals’. We loathe the idea of ‘Medical Professionals’, haughtily acting as ‘above reproach’; when they, in reality, are consciously behaving lower than ‘moles in a deep mine shaft’. Is money their “God”?

When ‘all is said and done’, after a review of collective autopsy results, of those Nations with fatalities, do not be surprised if world-wide attributed death numbers, from CV-19, are lowered. This being from pathologists’ assessments that other causes were responsible for the deaths, not the Influenza. Thus the current ‘mighty sizzle’ of CV-19, as propagated, in part, by ‘Mainstream Media’ [MSM], will have a odoriferous quality to it. After all, it was MSM, who ‘pushed the CV-19 ‘story’ way ahead of casualty numbers, before they were available months ago. It did this to a level we have never seen before; as to prior, more fatal, influenzas [as judged by broadcast times and articles written]. Why would this be?

Reality: A Man who does not want to be fooled by Fools, will cautiously analyze their submissions; this, by using wise assessment tools [one being, a judicious amount of scepticism].

A Strong Leader Is, As A Strong Leader Does

Russia concluded its voting as to Constitutional changes to modernize the country. The vote was overwhelmingly in favor of the alterations. In fact, 77.92% of voters agreed to make the changes. This is very impressive in that it displays ‘Democracy’ in action.

While we applaud the voters for exercising their franchises, we also have to extend our congratulation to President Putin. He achieved victory by gaining additional trust of his fellowmen and women.

For us, as International Businessmen, who have both met and dealt with leaders [both business and political] of many countries, we have only met a handful. at most who were ‘Strong Leaders’; such is Mr. Putin. We would like to cite his comments after his victory: ‘“We still have a lot of unresolved problems, this is true, people often face injustice, callousness, indifference. Many still live hard lives, while we, the country’s leadership, often think that we are doing our best,…. “But no, life shows a different picture, life shows that we often underperform, while we must act quicker, more exactly, in a more organized manner and more efficiently,”….’

Strong Leaders understand operational weaknesses and correct them. Now that President Putin, has added to his collective ‘Good Will’ by the citizens of Russia, future progress is highly likely.

Reality: A Strong Leader knows: “Leaders can fool their citizens; leaders can fool each other; however, leaders cannot fool the ‘Power’ from above.”

Innovative Philippine Bank Is ‘Branchless’ But With Global Reach

A group of Philippine bankers have catapulted their business model way beyond many other regional banks concepts. They are being as unique as their country’s President, Rodrigo Duterte; a “Government Leader”, who actually ‘leads’ his country.

The bankers are offering to interested clients “‘Branchless Banking’ through the Internet”; a progressive usage in banking, many will say.

After, ideating the concept, they took action and obtained governmental approvals, far and wide, with other Nations’ banking authorities. It seems to us that some ‘Duterteism Uniqueness’ had influenced both they and Philippine banking authorities; all are to be congratulated for showing imagination. The ability to help their compatriots around the world, with money-flow assistance is excellent!.

Reality: The world belongs to the aggressive; the Meek shall inherit lees.

Political Pandering and Patronage Produce Pakistan’s Perilous Pilots

Pakistan’s Civil Aviation Authority [PCAA] and the International Air Transportation Association [IATA] have announced that many of the country’s commercial airline pilots are potentially perilous. They have been flying for Pakistan’s various airlines while having fraudulent backgrounds, education, and experience, to qualify as Commercial Pilots.

Pandering and patronage might be socially acceptable behavior elsewhere, to induce a superior to do a favor. These particular misguidedly-approved Pilots’ Licenses had a deadly outcome in Pakistan. The PCAA in examining the evidence surrounding a airline, found fraudulent credentials of the cockpit crew. The Karachi crash killed 97 people.

Pakistan’s 860 pilots have approximately 200+ individuals with dubious bona fides of ‘holographic veracity’ one would analyze. Now, the PCAA is sorting through the ‘Information Swamp’ trying to determine who is actually qualified to fly commercial aircraft in Pakistan.

We find it incredible that such charades in Pilot Licensing have been occurring so long; endangering the public. Also, jeopardizing other innocent crew members, ground crews, and overflown residents [who might have a airplane crash into their homes].

We think a more Draconian methodology should be applied to governments which do not properly ‘vett’ their aircraft professionals: Immediately, upon finding ‘Systemic Abuse’, act; i.e., Prohibit other airlines from being able to fly to the offender nation. The economic travail of ‘No Freight-No Passengers’ entering a country is a necessary wake-up call for all. For a numerically lesser situation: Ground a airline’s aircraft in the particular country where it it headquartered.

This situation in Pakistan is equivalent to the U.S. Airframe who, in conjunction with the Federal Aviation Administration [FAA] were going to train pilots on their I-Pads! [Beyond airframe idiocy (so the it could make greater profits)].

We think it is time to stop ‘patronage’, as shown in mediocrity of qualifications [especially in learning to fly a commercial aircraft via I-Pad]. It is far too dangerous to the public. Citizens deserve better safety; they also deserve government bureaucrats [here, there, and everywhere] with integrity, not ‘bribees’.

Reality: It is much easier for all “Pertinent Parties” within an industry, to ‘fly straight’ than to have to clean up disasters, created by Fools.
